'Keel" is laid
'Keel' is laid: Like the keel of a giant ship, the spillway at Prairie Rose Lake southeast of harlan is beginning to extend up the hill and around behind the dam at the new lake. The spillway will keep the water in the 218-acre lake at a constant level. Work on the 900-foot earthen dam has been completed with the dirt used in forming the dam taken from the spillway area. The project is expected to be completed early this winter. -- Nonpareil Photo.
